¡Me Encanta!

The Big Mac....

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, cheese and onions on a sesame seed bun!

We all know the song, but can you sing it in Spanish? I just happened to go into a McDonalds that had a poster with both the English and Spanish lyrics. Now, sing it with me...

Dos raciones de carne, salsa especial, lechuga, pepinillo, cebolla en un pan con semillas de ajonjolí.

While I was quite excited to see the Big Mac song in Spanish, I wanted to hear it as well. So, off I went to hoping to find a Spanish version of one of the many childhood jingles shameless advertising has burned into my brain. But guess what? The Big Mac isn't even on the menu! Imagine my surprise. And no commercial either.

Well, I wasn't about to let that stop me from enjoying one of my favorite jingles in Español. So I did what I do best - I googled it (lo googleé), and I found this:

Clearly this is not one of the original Big Mac commercials, but I think it's great modern day jazzed up version that you just might enjoy singing along to.

I also found another McDonalds commercial in Español :

This one isn't Spanish, but vey, very funny

And as for "googleé" yes, that's a real verb - googlear. But more on that later.

Lastly, if you're interested in what McDonalds has on their menu in other Spanish speaking countries, go to and select your country of choice.
